to the legend, during the Period of the Warring States, there
was a woman gifted with immense abilities. Her name is Zhong
Wu Yan (Fann Wong). Among the many talented individuals
of that era, she stands out from the crowd, due in no small
part to her knowledge of warfare, weapons and magic. Her gifts
bring her to the attention of Emperor Qi (Gallen Lo),
who takes her as his bride in order to help him manage the kingdom.
Zhong Yu Yan proceeds to overhaul the country, bringing with
her revolutionary ideas that scandalized the entrenched bureaucracy
and threatens to turn the kingdom on its head. Zhong Wu Yan
also has to contend with four beautiful fox spirits in human
form, who are sent by Qi's enemies to beguile the Emperor and
distract him from his duties.
Qi's fondness for worldly pleasures thus weakens the country
and makes it easy prey for its enemies. Disappointed, Zhong
Wu Yan left the Emperor. However, Emperor Qi comes to his senses
in time. Touched by his sincerity in wanting to right his wrongs,
Zhong Wu Yan returns to his side and together, they guide Qi
to glory again.
Backed by witty and clever dialogue, as well as an intriguing
plotline, My Fair Lady promises a light-hearted treatment of
the well-known folk story.
